Bama basketball: @ LSU

Time: 8pm CST
TV: Lincoln Financial Sports
PlaceMaravich Assembly Center in Baton Rouge, LA

This is the SEC West version of Survivor. Two really bad teams, at the moment, fighting to stay in the conference race. Both had high expectations and are failing to live up to them. Both were darkhorse final four contenders...but now both have four league losses in six games.

Sounds funny, but it's true. Arkansas and Auburn both have better records...granted, it's only by half a game, but they're still leading the division.

So, tonight's game is all about who can put it back together quicker. LSU has had some ridiculous trouble shooting the basketball, but that is likely to continue for two reasons: 1) They have no real shooters, and 2) We will be playing Tubbs and Hollinger more, so their guards won't have nearly as many open looks.

I still don't feel like we can put it together on the road yet. Sadly, it looks like a 2-5 start to SEC play. Luckily we've got South Carolina and Mississippi State at home after this one, but then we play at Ole Miss and then at Florida.

As weak as we've been in the post lately, I look for Davis to have a MONSTER game against Hendrix and Davidson. He'll spark the team and lead them to a much needed victory. Bama will probably have to wait until Saturday against South Carolina to taste victory again.

Prediction: LSU 78 Alabama 63

P.S. Please prove me wrong...

Comments: I've only been able to watch a few of the Bama BB games on TV this year. I guess living in California has it's advantages. The stench is hardly smellable from here. It just seems that since T.R. Dunn left the coaching staff that things have gone downhill progressively. T.R.'s defensive expertise gave Bama an edge that they no longer have. So, who has been teaching our kids how to play defense since T.R. left, Jose Feliciano?
